Why is it that so many single Asian women seek out western men for romantic relationships?
There are a number of reasons why Asian women prefer western men. Sometimes it is to do with their social or economic status, or else the attraction may lie in the perception that they are not as desirable to their local male counterparts. Whatever the reason, the fact remains that a considerable number of Asian women are dating, and marrying, western men.
The face of beauty
Many western men find Asian women, especially those from China, particularly attractive and exotic. Because of this attraction, Chinese women who feel that they do not meet the standards of beauty at home may opt for foreign suitors who might find them more desirable. Women who find themselves to be mediocre in appearance by Chinese standards are often considered gorgeous among westerners. Lucy Liu, who has been regarded to be one of the world’s most beautiful television and movie actresses in the United States, for example, is seen as ‘a little bit ugly’ in China.
In China, it is commonplace for women to be married by the age of 28 and if she is still unmarried by then, she is often considered to be a ‘leftover’ woman. Often, these women have pursued education and careers rather than romance and marriage. Unfortunately for them, many Chinese men will find them undesirable because they have not married, so they turn to western men for love.
Purity and age
As with China’s ‘leftover’ women, those who have reached the age of 30 and are no longer virgins will be found undesirable by the majority of Chinese men. Divorced women with children are also less desirable. In most surveys, age and virginity are the least important factors for Chinese women when looking for a man, but the opposite is true of Chinese men seeking women. Western men often do not see these factors as a negative when dating women.
In China, education and family background play a large part in one’s desirability, especially to men. Women from poor families often have little chance of marrying anyone outside of their current social status, which is one of the reasons they might be attracted to western men. Bear in mind that almost 65% of China is agricultural, which means that a majority of the country’s women are from these poorer families.
Thanks to online dating sites, Asian women who are interested in dating western men now have an even better chance of finding that special someone. The Internet has made the world a lot smaller and given opportunities to people that they would not otherwise have been afforded in the past. So, regardless of the reasons why an Asian woman might want to be in a relationship with a western man, she now has a good chance!
